He said: “I want to make the Charing Cross Hotel the dining destination for leisure, business and events and my philosophy is to showcase both the ingredients and the professionalism of the team. I believe in the foundations of great cooking but I also have no boundaries in terms of what is supposed to be conventional.
"It's important to me that all guests experience the same level of pride and kitchen professionalism, whether we are preparing a sandwich, a breakfast or a three-course meal. Menu wise we will change over time and I look forward to exploring more about what guests enjoying during their time in the Charing Cross Hotel.''
